Experiencing morning sickness during pregnancy is normal. While it can feel unbearable, it typically goes away after 12 weeks. But when the nausea and vomiting become constant, you’re losing weight, and feeling dehydrated or light headed, then you must reach out to your provider immediately because you may have Hyperemesis Gravidarum. HG is caused by the rise in hormone levels when you are pregnant, but the cause beyond that is still unknown.

The way pushing is approached is insane. Who decided we should push on our backs with our legs in stirrups? We have to change the current birth culture! The second stage of labor (pushing) is so hard on us if we don't work WITH our bodies. I teach my students how to understand and work with their bodies and baby. NOT AGAINST! We do not push in a position that is convenient for someone else. Check out this list of what you can include in your birth plan about pushing!
Mama guilt. I wish I could say it goes away, but.. it does not. You are the thing that has to change. You have to learn how to let yourself off the hook, how to ignore the haters, and silence your inner critic.

One thing I want to remind you is this: YOU CAN STILL BE AN AWESOME MOM IF YOU MISS YOUR OLD LIFE BEFORE BABY! You are allowed. I promise you that.

Notice how at 1 cm is thick and closed. But at 10 cm, the cervix is thinned out and opened.
